Dalat in the central highlands of Vietnam is a place that you should visit if you travel to Vietnam. Also if you want a change of temperature this is place to come. The temperature at present stands at 14C on Thursday 17th December 2015 comparing to Ho Chi Minh City at 30C. With this type of climate Dalat is noted for its flowers and vegetables produce.
Where ever you go you can see greenhouses lining the fields.
Although there is major horticultural industry in Dalat, there are also a number of small holdings in operation, where their main source of income comes from what they produce.
